PCard Manual 1.0 Introduction

Financial Services is proud to bring you a convenient, safe way to make small dollar purchases, and a means to monitor your business expenditures. The Purchasing Card (PCard) eliminates as much as possible, the need for purchase orders and direct reimbursements by allowing designated staff and faculty to make purchases with a University credit card.

The PCard is used for traditional small dollar purchases (Purchasing Policy 3.2), total cost not to exceed $10,000, including freight and tax. Suggested uses include, but are not limited to, operating supplies; books, lab equipment; computer equipment; subscriptions; cellular phone bills; equipment repair; conference registration fees; professional membership and dues.

The PCard is to be used for University of Arizona business only, not for personal use. All transactions made using the PCard must benefit and support the University's mission of education, research and public service.
